LOOKING GOOD FOR YOUR HUSBAND
Dear wife......CARE ABOUT YOUR APPEARANCE THE WAY YOU CARED AT FIRST. LOOK GOOD for your husband. Take some pride in your appearance. You may firmly believe that your husband should not care about the way you look. You are entitled to firmly believe that. But... sweet girl... he does.
You may want to write me comments about how absolutely sexist it is for me to tell you to try to look good when your husband is around.. Go ahead and write them.. but I guarantee you... in his heart... your husband CARES about your appearance MORE THAN HE MIGHT BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO TELL YOU.
At the beginning of your relationship....you cared about your appearance... You know you did. Care about it again.
NOTE: I am not saying LOOK THE WAY YOU LOOKED AT FIRST.
I am saying "CARE the way you CARED at first"...
No woman can look the way she looked at first.
But she can CARE the way she cared at first.
I don't know why GOD created men the way He created them. But I am wise enough to not argue with The Creator. Men are not complicated beings.
Some of you will write me with questions like, "Why doesn't HE care about the way HE looks around me?" And my answer is..."I don't know why. The only question YOU can answer is why YOU don't care about the way YOU look around him."
Or you may announce, "I've had four children. I'm not a supermodel.'
Good for you. Did I say "Look like a supermodel'?
No. I did not.
I simply said, "CARE ABOUT your appearance again."
What does that mean?
It means what it seems to mean. Care about how you look.
It matters. To your husband.
But wait.... Is your appearance ALL that should matter?
Should he care about your heart? Yup.
Should he care about your giftedness? Yup.
Should he care about the kind of mother you are to his children? Yup.
Should he care about how deeply you love God? Yup.
Should he care that you care about others? Yup.
Should he care that you put up with his mother? Yup.
Should he care that you sacrifice material things so as to not burden him? Yup.
Should he care that you keep the house clean and in order? Yup.
Should he care that you are caring and intelligent? Yup.
Should he care that you encourage him to follow his dreams? Yup.
Should he care that you are interesting enough to continue to follow your dreams? Yup.
Should he care that are fun and happy? Yup.
Should he care that you work outside the home when you'd rather be home? Yup.
There are NINE HUNDRED MILLION THINGS your husband should cherish about you MORE THAN than your appearance.
But.. that doesn't mean he should have to lie and say it doesn't matter to him AT ALL.
It does. Trust me, honey. It does.
MEN are not WOMEN
He should not care about the way you look MORE THAN your heart for God.
OR... MORE THAN your heart for your children.
Or... MORE THAN other very important stuff.
don't be foolish enough to think it doesn't matter to him AT ALL.
No woman EVER ruined her marriage by taking time to LOOK her best.
I find far too many wives who spend more time caring about how they look in church, or at work.. than they do at home. You don't have to cook in a bikini, or watch T.V. in a prom dress... but .......who said you should? Not Mrs. Older.
CARE about it.
It's true that....some days... you don't have the energy to care about how you look.. and just need home to be the place you can crash and just unwind.
But on the days you do have some energy..... then care on those days.
Anything is better than nothing.
Is that all that a woman should do to help her marriage? NOPE.
Does looking your best outwardly mean you can ignore being beautiful on the inside?
Does caring about your appearance guarantee your marriage will not fail?
God looks at the heart.
Your husband, however, can only see the outside.
Care about the outside also.
